Teacher's Softchalk Lessons Chosen as Lesson of the Week.

Congratulations to Kyle Berg, high school Social Studies teacher from Indianola whose Softchalk lesson " New Deal Government Intervention " was chosen as Softchalk's Lesson of the Week.  In this Lesson students learn about some of the responses FDR took to battling the Great Depression and are asked to determine which system they believe would work the best if we faced another depression in modern times.  Kyle previously had another Softchalk Lesson of the week titled "Cuban Missile Crisis"

Congratulations to Troy Staudt, technology teacher at Gilbert Middle School,  whose Softchalk lesson "App Developer: Athletics and Body Systems " was also chosen as Softchalk's Lesson of the Week.  This lesson serves as the instructions for a project where students design the concept for an app about human body systems.
